Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Zechariah, i:15.)--'And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.' At the time Zechariah wrote his prophecy Beyrout was in the bounds of a heathen country. It is a very old place, and is spoken of in history before the time of Alexander the Great. This place was entirely destroyed in the second cenntury before Christ in consequence of a rebellion against Antiochus VII. After the destruction of Jerusalem, Titus is said to have caused numerous Jews to enter the lists against each other at Beyrout. The picture above of the bridge over the Dog river is about six miles north of the city in sight of the Bay of St. George. The Dog river has its source in Mount Jebel Sunnin[.]" "Vol. 2" and "I" are printed beneath the text
A stone bridge with four arches crosses the Dog River; several buildings, including some squarish ones with arched openings, are near or on the banks
